Randomness: Updated the laptop to Ubuntu 8.10 when it was released yesterday. Think I'll wait a bit longer on my desktop at home... some graphical hiccups combined with the failure of my embedded terminal (via devilspie) makes me think that it could use some ironing out.
Food: Made orange marshmallows
for the office Hallowe'en party today. A LOT
of marshmallows. They're sweet and fluffy, lightly flavored, and completely addictive. I am confident that there won't be any left after lunch! I copped out on making the planned mint chocolate oreo brownies - after the apple butter and the marshmallows, both of which were 2-day projects, I didn't want to look at the kitchen last night!
I have my first sewing class tomorrow, and due mostly to the fact that I was waiting for a still-unreceived email confirming that the class has enough attendance to take place, I'm completely unprepared. And in the rush of getting out of the house this morning, I neglected to pick up the sheet of paper detailing what, exactly, I need for this thing. Crap. >:o I can pick up the notions tomorrow morning, and won't need most of 'em the first day anyway, but I'm going to have to get the fabric and thread today come hell or high water... I won't have time to pre-wash, dry and iron it otherwise. So, since I don't know exactly how much to get... guess I'll just have to guess and get extra!
I also signed up for a short 2-week knitting class, starting on Wednesday. It was actually kind of serendipitous - I was looking for local yarn stores, and also rather curiously for armwarmer patterns (don't shoot me - they're nifty!). The class is both local and will be making armwarmers, so I figure it's a sign! I actually called the store and spoke to the lady who will be teaching it, since I wasn't sure that with my experience (read: I can knit and purl. Beyond that? Lol.) it would be worth it to sign up. She said that I sounded like a good fit for the rest of the class, though, and I'm a fast learner anyway. I'll try to get some practice in this weekend.
All of this stuff is more or less aimed at getting me out of the house a bit more consistently. I know that I'm rather a recluse at the best of times, but it's getting absurd - I leave for work, food and UFC. Good excuses, yes, but lacking a bit in companionship? A lot of the problem is that I'm tired after the work day and Just Want To Go Home. Also, if you know me at all, you know that in general a group of girls is not something I'll go out of my way to join, nor are "clubs" that just sit around and talk about things (even neat things, like linux or video game design)... but maybe if I start out knowing that we've got a common practical
interest, it won't be so bad?

Honestly, not bad news!....
Internet is written with the capital letter in a sentence, by the way. And hundredths are written not with a point but with a comma. This is according to the standard. And actually everything is very good..!!
Thanks for all the answers:) In fact, learned a lot of new information. Dut I just didn`t figure out what is what till the end!....
The material is on the five plus. But there is a minus! My internet speed 56kb/sek. The page was loading for about 40 seconds!....
